I didn't have the pleasure to know Mr. Myers personally, but I read every book of his that my library had during high school. His words and stories opened my world and touched my heart. They will continue to do so for many young adult readers to come." - Emily C (New York, NY)

July 08, 2014 "Dear Chris and family,
I send you my deepest sympathy; I brought your dad to Nathan Bishop Middle School in Providence when you were at Brown...and you came too, and our mutual friends the Trotters celebrated you also. Our students were thrilled with his books and developed art projects, if you recall. I saw him at many conferences...and I cherish his books and my memories. I loved your most recent NYT article.
Thank you for his gifts to thousands of students and teachers.
Susan A. Kaplan, Providence RI Schools Administrator, (retired)"
